CINCINNATI — Cintas Corp. reports that it has been named to Newsweek’s list of America’s Most Trustworthy Companies 2023 in recognition of its commitment to integrity, ethics and transparency in its business operations
“Trust is the foundation of all successful relationships, and we’re committed to upholding the highest standards of integrity, transparency and accountability so we maintain the trust we’ve earned with our customers, our employee-partners, our shareholders and with every stakeholder in our business,” says Todd Schneider, Cintas president and CEO.
“Trust and mutual respect are foundations of our culture, so we’re certainly honored to be recognized as one of the most trustworthy companies, especially where it was determined through public input.”
Cintas says it has a long-standing reputation for excellence in customer service, innovation, and sustainability, and has been recognized consistently for its commitment to ethical business practices. The company has an extended track record of financial success and growing both revenue and EPS year-over-year.
Detailed in Cintas Founder Dick Farmer’s book The Spirit is the Difference, Cintas’ corporate culture places a premium on the values of professionalism, integrity, high moral standards, teamwork, and accountability.
These corporate characteristics continue to be personified by the company’s employee-partners in everything from its corporate governance policies and business operations to its purpose-focused work, including philanthropy, sustainability, human capital, safety and health and DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) initiatives.
The annual America’s Most Trustworthy Companies ranking, conducted by Newsweek in partnership with global research firm Statista, identifies the top 400 trusted companies in the United States based on an independent survey of more than 25,000 U.S. residents who were surveyed about how they felt companies treated their customers and employees and if they are believed to be good long-term investments.
Nancy Cooper, Newsweek’s global editor in chief, adds in the announcement, “Trust is as crucial for any business as employees, capital and customers. If customers, employees and investors feel they can’t rely on a company to be honest and fair with them, that company can’t function for long.
“And in recent years, particularly through the pandemic, trust has taken on more meaning for businesses than just square dealing and avoiding scandal. Increasingly, consumers, employers and investors also want to know that a company shares their beliefs and values before they’ll come aboard.”
